New Dealer: Andy's Antiques & Collectables

This month we welcome Andy Powell to Alfies. Andy has led an illustrious life, in the 1970s he was a radio personality for Radio London and CBS. Soon afterwards he became a photojournalist capturing key international news events in the 1980s, from the wedding of Diana Spencer to the Gulf War, freelancing for top international media organisations.

His true vocation became apparent in the '90s when he focused on what he truly loved - painting. He became a well known artist whose work has been likened to Picasso and Kandinsky. In 1997 he exhibited at the Royal Academy
